In Search of the Great Beast 666 (2009) Aleister Crowley, self proclaimed "The Great Beast" and known by the press as "The Wickedest Man in the World" was perhaps the most controversial and notorious individual in British history - if not the entire 20th century. This film dramatically documents the chilling life, impulses and journey of Crowley (1875-1947), a man who was voted in a BBC poll to be one of the most influential Britons of all time. This documentary unearths the barely believable and shocking facts surrounding this infamous occultist, spy, poet, dark magician, hedonist, writer and accomplished mountaineer. Under various guises and camouflaged by pseudonyms, Crowley traveled the world in his quest for supreme knowledge and ultimate power through the occult. He reveled in what some describe as acts of sexual decadence yet recognized by others as extreme depravity. And his influence on modern culture is evident yet his reputation remains shrouded in a veil of infamy. Was he related to U.S. President George Bush? And how was he connected to Scientology, Jack the Ripper, Winston Churchill, Hitler and Ian Fleming (creator of James Bond)? $19.95 (The Disinformation Company). Extras: Also available on Blu-ray Disc.

He finds himself working on a homicide squad where hard drinking replaces hard thinking; forensics takes weeks to analyze; and his boss, DCI Gene Hunt has no qualms about roughing up suspects - or Sam himself.
